Re: Currently Reading: Chapter II

Recently finished The Tain of the Mirror , which I highly recommend, and now find myself ~100 pages into this and quite enjoying. Gasché writes about such abstract concepts with prodigious clarity while not only avoiding simplification but, paradoxically, expanding the very depths he plumbs, and he ...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2018

Meanwhile, have you checked out the latest Bartas, Frost ? Nice rip of that up there - haven't had time to get round to it yet, but I know you're a fan Thanks for the heads-up on this. I'm familiar with the Kelemen film—another quality work with a rip that doesn't do it justice—and the Bernhard nov...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2018

In fact, I've seen quite a few Ruiz films where the quality was poor, but they impressed nonetheless. Just out of curiosity, anyone subscribe to a site that would be likely to screen under-the-radar films from the Chilean's oeuvre? I have Mubi, and while it's good, they recently raised the price a n...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2018

Love L'eveillé du pont de l'Alma —probably one of his densest films. The rip I watched looked like shit. Just checked KG, and I had a message that the rip I saw was deleted. New one looks lovely (curious which site the uploader is referring to by "a streaming video site"), and I hope the subs get so...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2017

Definitely cool to have different opinions and wasn't my intention to imply otherwise. Any confrontation in my vehemence was only meant jokingly, but that doesn't anyways translate well online. Mea culpa.

Re: Recently Watched Films 2017

Next someone's gonna characterize Querelle as "lesser Fassbinder"—or something worse—and I'll really lose my shit. :)

Anyone watched the recent rip of Eight Hours Don't Make a Day? Have it downloaded, just haven't gotten to it. I'll be very surprised if I don't dig it.

Lesser Fassbinder? I think not; it's a masterpiece.

I tend to avoid coming-of-age films categorically; they're not usually interesting to me.

Re: Recently Watched Films 2017

How's the rip quality? Looks interesting - thanks for the tip Rip is pretty decent actually, which you might not expect from the file size (< 700 MB). (By the way, please excuse the indefinite article typo in my little write-up—a casualty of word reordering.) Speaking of tips, wanted to rec Bartas'...

One thing that's a bit funny: For as #SlowCinema as this is, the few segments of dialogue seem unnaturally fast—though only slightly—as if the film is sped up. Not sure if it's ju...

Going through the latest season of The Trip a bit too quickly—I need to savor it more—but it's just so enjoyable.
